Looked shaky early match but after about 20 mins Odimayo started to play a lot better and had a good game. Grounds is a solid defender, he is always capable of making 1 or 2 mistakes a game but hes a better CB than Baudry IMO, being one is left footed and one right footed they do compliment each other well.

With Grounds' history and experience he was always likely to be a good signing at this level.

I'm feeling more comfortable with Kovar every game, even though he did still have a couple of dodgy moments. He's coming for crosses now and catching them rather than punching them. He also helped to start the attack for the winner

They told us they were going to piss the league and boasted about their state of the art training facilities were far superior to ours
TBF they're right about the training facilities. Just goes to show, it's not always necessary/enough to have the best facilities, it's what you do there that matters.

Guaranteed 3 points for the away team but no biggie.  As observed above, the bigger picture is far more important.

Thankfully wrong this time JBZ. Perhaps it's time to reassess your approach to overly certain future results for Town?  Hmmm They have been (understandably) negative.

In fairness, I think that the result came as a (welcome) surprise to many.

I'm just teasing. Great result.

Also though, Hull isn't that bad a place. It's a cracking place. Think a lot are judging it based on the late 80s or early 90s. It has come on a bit since then.

understatement.

And when they scored their first I knew I was right. Right up until I wasn't.

Can't even call it a lucky win. We at least matched them after the first 20.

So, Plymouth on Tuesday then...

As soon as the first went in I turned the radio off, muttering same old shite.

Firstly a little moan about the replays on Ifollow, I wish they would stop doing it so much during the game, it cuts into so much game play that you miss the flow of the match.

Anyway - I thought Hull absolutely bossed us for the first 20 minutes or so as we struggled to come to terms with them. When they scored I was the same as Jay 'same old shite etc' and really feared a bit of a battering.

To our immenses credit, and I think the Caddis goal, which came from very quick thinking by J.Smith came at exactly the right time and gave us a big wedge of belief back. We ended the half much stronger.

Second half I thought we really played well, Hope was tireless in his lone front man role holding the ball up well and we looked a real danger down the right hand side with Caddis and J.Smith building a great relationship. We scored an excellent second with a wonderful team goal from the back, J.Grant finishing well. We then saw the game out expertly frustrating Hull.

I think Grounds and Odimayo (bar one ridiculous pass) are very good ball playing centre backs and are improving game by game. Sometimes they ooze class on the ball. I think Odimayo's positioning still requires work but of course he is young and hopefully the experienced players can help him here. I do think our achilles heel is crosses into the box, Kovar took a couple of clean catches second half to ease pressure and I assume he's been trained to punch less. Its worth remembering hs is very very young and so probably needs a clean sheet or 2 or 3 good games until we really see him coming into his own. He didn't let his minor rick in giving away a silly corner in the first half affect him so fair play.

Hallam Hope was my man of the match. He ran himself into the ground, as did Caddis to be fair who is developing a great relationship with J.Smith. A.Grant showed some of his L2 form and made one brilliant tackle in the first half to snuff out a dangerous Hull attack in our box. When we get Lydon, Conroy, Fryers, T.Smith and Pitman fit and firing we should be fine.
